Broken resistance on a GA-8IHXP (rev3) mobo

I tried to install a new zanman cooler for the cpu but i used the wrong type of screws and I broke a small electronic component that was just above the cpu on the position labeled as "R916". I would like to know what this component was (probably a resistance) and the technical specifications of it so that I can replace it.
Needless to say, the system now will not start.

Buy a new board, waste of time to repair it. Been there and done that.

Its a resistor. The colored bands show exactly what the specs are.
Here is a page to show you how to read it.

If you take it out radio shack should be able to match it up for you.

CPU fan & PSU fan working but No display coming to the screen

There should be some sort of beeps then. No beeps is an indication the CPU or RAM is not seated properly. You need to refer to board manual if there are beeps.
There is also the matter of... Never mind I just noticed the CPU is an 8 core CPU, but the board supports quad core.

Double check my findings and go from there. Good Luck

Motherboard compatibility

If you want to replace the mobo always compare the cpu-slot and the memory slots.
Tok a fast look on both of the mobos and both supports same cpu, both supports same memosticks though the the one you have supports ddr2 667mgz and the new one you found supports ddr2 1333+mhz. So you can use it but you may have to buy faster memosticks if you want to use the full power of it.

Here is the support site for the new one:

On that site you will also find all the drivers you may need if you buy it

And here is the support site for the mobo you have:

Now you can compare yourself if you want.
BTW, that GA-EP45-DS3 is a very good mobo

Good luck to you

No boot, continuous Beep

I would take the CPU back out. Remove the excess thermal compound, you should only use a very thin layer. Make sure the CPU is oriented and seated properly.

Motherboard is not booting!!!!!

Hi Jay,
Is you're memory installed in the two yellow slots?
Try using only 1 DIMM in DDRII_1 slot.
Page 17 in you're manual. When using only one PCI-E graphics cards you do not need to plug in extra power to the board, as shown on page 19. (Only need this additional 4-pin Molex when running two PCI-E cards).
Check internal connector is plugged in item,
1 ATX_12V_2X (Pg. 23 in you're manual).
(System will not boot without this).
Also item, 2 main power 24-pin Molex cable is securely connected. Chassis Intrusion Header (By default is opened/no jumper). I don't like the CPU getting hot. It shouldn't. Do you have a spare heat sink & fan for you're CPU? Are you 100% the cooling system is running correctly?
Lastly, here is Gigabyte's Qualified Vendors List (QVL), for you're board. Corsair 2GB is not listed.

How long have you had the system in that configuration? It doesn't seem to be a heat issue running around 45 degrees unless that is the idle temp. I need you to try something, when it shuts down, immediately restart the system in bios and look at the temp for the processor again. I solved my issue by taking a side off of my case and putting a small desk fan blowing directly into it. My idle temp went from 45 down to 27 degrees celcius. In a perfect world, the cooler a CPU runs, the better the system will respond. Find those temps readings for me, and let me know. Also, there may be a small monotoring program in your mobo set up disc to help monitor the temp while windows is running. And also, double check to make sure your processor fan is plugged into the correct spot on the mobo, mine is mislabeled, another issue I had found and corrected.

I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.

So it sounds like you are able to enable SLI mode, but once you do, you have no video output (upon reboot). The most likely problem is that it's now in SLI mode, but your monitor cable is hooked up to the wrong video card; try changing it to the other video card, and see if you have output from that one.
